Thank you all for joining me on this amazing fundraising journey. I am excited to announce that we have reached/surpassed our goal and raised $5,001!!! I will be hand-delivering the donations to both organizations in New York City these next couple of days. Again, my sincere thanks to all who helped me to change the world for my 25th birthday!

My thoughts and prayers go out to 230 school girls who were abducted by Boko Haram, a northern Nigerian Islamist terrorist group.

"The Islamist militants' name translates to "Western education is a sin" in the local language.
The group especially opposes the education of women. Under its version of Sharia law, women should be at home raising children and looking after their husbands, not at school learning to read and write."

I'm reminded that education is truly a privilege enjoyed by a few and a sacrifice made by many.
